Sustainable Way To Experience Jianshui Old Town & Yuanyang Rice Terraces


Unlike the world famous Dali, Lijiang or Shangri-La, the Southern part of Yunnan still remains its authenticity and traditions. In this very part of China, you may have many opportunities to encounter Non-touristy villages, centuries-old architectures and friendly folks, you may also be enchanted by colorful minority groups, busy rural markets and jaw-dropping view of the Rice Terraces.

In a word, the Southern part of Yunnan is a perfect place for travelers to avoid the mass tourism and experience the real China.

Through different eco experiences arranged in this tour, you will be taken to genuine places and to explore their hidden treasures: natural landscape, people's daily life, cultural & historical atmosphere.

Cycling, hiking, home-staying and enjoying home cooked meals will be highlights of this tour.
